Solar-ready projects | Solar Overlay District | Installed and planned
Town Meeting passed a warrant article requiring new municipal buildings to be solar ready. The latest project is the Devotion School renovation. Two new school projects, the ninth elementary school and the Brookline High School expansion, are being studied as possible Net Zero projects.
Solar Overlay District
The Town amended its Zoning Bylaw to establish a Solar Overlay District (SOL) in the location of the transfer station as a potential site for a renewable energy facility.
Installed and Planned
Solar photovoltaic panels have been installed on the Public Heath building and the Putterham Library. Possible installation includes the Main Library, the Runkle School, the Kirrane Aquatics Center, and the Soule Recreation Center.
